Yeah I don't remember any drop in quality either, and I replayed it a few years ago.1
I enjoyed this. It was a perfectly entertaining hour and a half, with some nice nods to the games and excellent animation. They even managed to give Mario a bit of a character arc.
It didn't have the depth of a good Disney or Pixar offering, but it was fun and I'd happily watch it again.0

Can anyone else tell me what Metro Last Light settings you’re using for the free game on Steam.
All my control mappings are messed up and it doesn’t seem to change when I apply different profiles.
Have you checked the in game config? It's possible it's somehow set itself to something other than the defaults, in which case the Steam controller profile wouldn't match up properly.0

Well, that first season of Rebels was fucking awesome.
I at the same point in my rewatch, and yes it's superb. I remember liking it first time around, but that it didn't really kick off until season 2. I was clearly misremembering.
It definitely gets better, but it's already so much better than most of the live action shows and easily my favourite of the animated ones.1

Forgive my ignorance aren't they true?
What Alex said, basically. The first point is basically saying there's no such thing as trans men (and presumably trans people full stop), while the second is an old boneheaded argument for gun ownership that ignores how gun crime is massively, massively greater in countries where guns are legal than where they aren't.
Basically all the points are far right bullshit.2
Yeah, I get occasional issues like that in Brave, but Edge usually works as a fallback.0

So the game after this one will be called Mortal Kombat Series?
Or Mortal Kombat V if they're going by the Battlefield system.1
I try to avoid games that require mindless violence against animals, which coincidentally tend to also be Ubisoft games. Assassin's Creed Origins was especially bad for this.2
I definitely understand the view that you effectively can't avoid giving money to bastards one way or another, but I think it's a bit of a convenient excuse when arguing against specific examples. In my case, some people and organisations just strike a nerve with me when others don't, and there are some causes which resonate more with me than others.1

Same. The way I look at it is me boycotting a game going to make a difference and send a message - the answer is no.
I think most people choosing to not by a game due to the behaviour of the people involved generally do so out of principle rather than the belief that it's going to bring down the company or something.
I'd rather my money didn't go to hateful people, basically.4

As laudable as boycotting stuff is, I suspect if it turns out that Eiji Aonuma turns out to be an arsehole then a sum total of zero people will boycott the next Zelda game.
Boycotting is easy to do when you don't really care about what's being boycotted.
While it's certainly easier to avoid games you weren't going to play in the first place, I don't think your assumption is true or fair. The Hogwarts Legacy thread contains plenty of examples of people who really wanted to play the game but didn't for instance, myself included.
I haven't bought a Ubisoft game in a long time because of their ongoing issues, despite enjoying the AC games in the past.
If Aonuma turned out to be a closet nazi I wouldn't buy any more Zelda games.
I won't even pretend it's particularly hard to boycott stuff, even stuff I really want to play because the FOMO always passes in time and there's always more to play.1

im not sure - i got email late in december telling me I had to have a Meta account or lose my access. Next time I played in January I had to set up a Meta account - which I did begrudgingly (walkabout Mini Golf).
However, they may have gone back on it since I don't know, you may well be right. As Stu says the Meta account at least isn't a facebook account hookup!
I think the original requirement was for you to have a full on Facebook account, tied to the social media platform. The switch to Meta accounts let you keep it separate from Facebook itself.1
The whole idea of celebrating regressive sci-fi seems so very stupid. I bet it's all utterly terrible.1

I just saw this on the PC Gamer website, which was disappointing to say the least:Quote
Doom co-creator John Carmack is headlining a 'toxic and proud' sci-fi convention that rails against 'woke propaganda'
Id Software co-founder and former Oculus VR CTO John Carmack is facing criticism for his recent announcement that he will be attending BasedCon, a sci-fi and fantasy convention for fans who are "tired of woke propaganda."
"I’m going to be at basedcon.com again this year," Carmack tweeted. "I had read books from and twitter-interacted with three of the authors (more since!), but I wasn’t sure what to expect last year. It turned out fun, in a grass-roots con way that reminded me of the old Space Access days.
"I was just going to show up as a normal attendee / fan of the authors last year, but Rob [presumably BasedCon fouder Robert Kroese] nudged me into doing a talk and some panels, and I enjoyed it."
The "based beliefs" that the event organisers list include the following delightful examples:
- Men cannot give birth
- Guns don’t kill people; people kill people
- A fetus is a human being
- Socialism has failed everywhere it’s been tried
- Discriminating against white people is racism
I can't say I'd ever given any thought to Carmack's politics before now, but now I don't want anything to do with anything he's involved with.15

Picked up Command & Conquer : Remastered on sale for £2.69 so can't wait to get that configured properly and playing on the Steam Deck
Unless things have changed, you need to run this in desktop mode in order for the menu buttons to work. Otherwise it runs perfectly and plays surprisingly well.1
It's definitely worth a watch. It's not exactly prestige TV, but it's the best Superman thing I've seen in a long time and in a whole other class to the rest of the CW DC stuff.0

That's why Reeves Superman is still the best. It didn't rely on the big smashy smashy or fights as it's more a human drama than action film. That wouldn't fly with today's audiences though.
Superman and Lois is very much a human drama first, especially the current season, and it's really good. It still has the superheroics of course, but it's often a subplot to the family drama at the core of the show.
Clark Kent has always been the more interesting side of Supes to me, and that's no different here. The show's at its best when he's confronted with stuff he can't just solve with superpowers.1

The game still encourages you to junction your magic to stats, though - that's the principal way you improve your characters
Oh definitely. It's a core system! You just don't need to go crazy with it, hoarding spells and stuff like it's so tempting to do.1

That lets you play the games on that device? Is it a virtual cloud thingy?
Yeah it's just for streaming Game Pass games. Like James said, it technically allows you to play Xbox games on an Android device.1

Is there a way the devs intended it should be played without breaking it? Like using the attack spells etc. rather than keeping them all and choosing attack every time which sounds pretty boring tbh.
I'm not sure what the intention was, but I like to play by mixing up draws and attacks during fights and not worrying about grabbing the maximum amount of anything. I also don't worry about using junctioned spells.
I can't imagine the intention was for players to spend hours drawing spell after spell they're never going to actually cast, although that's exactly how I played it when it came out. I remember spamming GFs way too much too.0

Xbox Game Pass.0
Eurogamer gave it four stars, not 8.0
8 can be broken in a few ways. It has an enemy level scaling system for instance, so if you keep a party member low level and swap them in for the bosses they'll be super weedy and can be demolished by your two high level characters.
I found the game much more fun on my last run when I stopped worrying about min-maxing though.1

I loved episode 3. I thought the generator stuff was super tense and helped hammer home how important it is to the running of the silo.
Same here. That generator scene was real edge of the seat stuff.0
Silo - Series Based on Wool Novels (Apple TV)
in Film, TV & Radio
The fourth was a bit meh for me too really. It didn't really move anything forwards and lacked the drive of the third.
